A few months ago I realized that going back to the gym just wasn't going to happen for me. But with 60 looming, I also knew that our dog walks and hikes in decent weather weren't going to be enough to get me where I wanted to be. The research began - started looking at bikes, but I hate spin class. Then briefly considered a tread again, but remembered how long our old one sat in disuse. A squat machine? No, that seemed like a gimmick. Saw an ad for a rower, and the research began. Hmmmm, rowing uses 86% of your muscles? Low impact on our knees, ankles and hips? Easy to set up, and looks cool? The Ergatta went to the top of the list. We debated it, thought about the expense, and decided it would be an investment in ourselves that we had to go for. We ordered it, cleaned out the spare room to make a little home gym, and the Ergatta arrived less than two weeks later on 12/21/21. We opted to assemble it ourselves and that part was super easy too. I started rowing that day and never looked back. Love the Push programs, the milestones and workout tracking, open rowing, racing, the sound of the water, the way I feel strong and energized - I love everything about it. Yesterday, four weeks after I started, I reached my 100K meter milestone, and I rowed 7400M in 45 minutes, expending over 600 calories. Is that at the top of the leaderboard? No, and I don't care, because when I finished, I still felt like a champion. Buy the Ergatta!
This rower is every bit as beautiful in person as it is in the promotional photography. Easy to move around, very quiet, and a seriously tough workout!
My husband and I wanted an indoor workout machine and researched rowers for about two months before deciding on this beautiful piece of machinery. It’s easy to assemble, move around, and very quiet. The tutorials are very helpful especially if you are a beginner. We each have our own individual rowing goals and are able to see the progress. I especially like how I can use a chest strap and my Bluetooth headset to listen to music which by the way, they have a great selection of various genres. We are very satisfied with the Ergatta and it’s worth the price. I push myself daily to better my splits and have noticed my whole body feels the workout because I am using muscles that I didn’t know I had. My advice would be to start slow and steady to master the technique then work on intensity. You won’t be sorry :)
This rower is awesome! The software/games keep me motivated. I rarely miss a workout because they are fun. The rower can be used for intense workouts or a relaxing free row.
I researched rowers without having rowed before and landed on Ergatta. If all things being generally equal between rowers, Ergatta tipped the scale for me because of the program content- it seemed the developers *are/were* rowers; the rower design is beautiful AND made in the USA.
So far, I used the Ergatta for about 6-wks and enjoy learning the technique, the fun challenges, the variety of programs. Looking forward to more open row content. Highly recommend even for people new to rowing.
